TIGER STYLE by Mike Lew is a fast-paced family comedy about Chinese American heritage. Two squabbling siblings who achieved academically as children join forces to overcome the outrageous pressures of adulthood.
Albert and Jennifer Chen were at the pinnacle of academic achievement. But now they suck at adult life. Albert’s just been passed up for promotion and Jennifer’s just been dumped by her loser boyfriend. So they do what any reasonable egghead brother and sister would do: go on an Asian Freedom Tour! From California to Shenzhen, TIGER STYLE! Examines the successes and failures of tiger parenting from the point of view of a playwright who’s actually been through it.
